What is Whistleblower?
A Whistleblower is an individual who brings attention to illegal, unethical, or improper activity within an organization by disclosing confidential information. This type of disclosure can be made internally (within the organization) or externally (to a regulatory agency or the public).
The whistleblower's primary motivation is often to protect the public interest, stop harm, and/or seek justice. In some cases, it can also be motivated by personal gain such as financial rewards and recognition.
